Dental Crowns Save Teeth
Everyone wants to chew comfortably and have teeth that look like real teeth! When a large portion of your natural tooth is no longer functional, its usually time for a crown.
Dental crowns are durable covers or caps that are carefully fitted around the visible portion of a problem tooth to protect it from further damage. Sometimes crowns are used to cover a tooth where a large cavity existed, to replace old metal fillings, or to keep broken teeth from breaking further. Crowns can be made of a variety of materials but at Start Smiling Dental our crowns are made entirely of porcelain which is the highest quality available. All-Porcelain Crowns replicate the look of natural teeth more accurately than other available options and since they have no metal, you'll never get the dark line near your gum.
To create a custom crown, our dental team first prepares the tooth and takes impressions that will be sent to the dental laboratory. A temporary crown will be placed on the tooth while the permanent, custom crown is being made. When the permanent crown is returned to the office, the dentist will fit and set the crown on your tooth. The result will be a beautiful restoration that will function like a natural tooth!
Sometimes, it's possible for us to fabricate your crown in just one visit! Check out our Cerec page for more information!
If you've been told you need a crown and would like a second opinion or just an estimate, give our office a call at 404-255-6782 and we will be happy to help.

Dental Crowns Reviews
"Last week I had the first of two appointments for the replacement of a crown. I was amazed that I did not feel even the initial stick of the injection, and the entire process was comfortable and painless, even when the numbness wore off. Many thanks to Dr. Sayeg for his skill and calm, easy manner and Shinny for her warmth and professionalism. For her congeniality and gentle touch during all of my dental cleanings, I thank Tanya. And Rebecca is to be commended for being efficient and ever-pleasant, with a ready smile in person that can even be heard through the telephone. With such caring staff, access to my favorite shows on Netflix and Hulu, and paraffin hand treatments, this office makes dental visits feel almost like trips to a day spa!"- A.H. / Yelp / Feb 25, 2017
